Scaling email creation: how SaaStr generates 350 emails per year for its growing SaaS Community

“Prior to using BEE Pro, creating a single email would take me hours. Now, I can design five emails in the same duration with ease. It’s an amazing improvement - five times faster than before.”

Amelia Ibarra, General Manager, SaaStr

Amelia Ibarra, with over 12 years of experience in devising innovative marketing campaigns for B2B and B2C businesses, specializes in email marketing. Her expertise has driven growth for SaaStr through groundbreaking campaigns.

Amelia and her team at SaaStr, a no-code team with restricted access to designers, faced challenges in creating various email content, including newsletters, ticket emails, and attendee emails, tailored to different customer journey stages.

Disappointed with their sending platform's cumbersome email builder, Amelia's team sought a flexible solution to create brand-aligned emails while efficiently managing time and resources. Being a small team, finding a tool that would boost engagement and conversions while delivering high-quality emails was crucial.


The marketing team sought intuitive tools that enabled a quick start. They chose BEE Pro, an easy-to-use drag-and-drop editor that satisfied their requirements.

With BEE Pro, the team efficiently created and managed all their emails. They used folders to organize campaigns, facilitating easy access to past projects for inspiration.

Inspired by BEE Pro's template catalog, the team crafted and customized their templates to match SaaStr's branding, accelerating content creation. They also found the saved rows feature valuable for recurring emails, like newsletters.

BEE Pro's version control feature ensured no changes were lost, empowering the team to produce high-quality, engaging, and conversion-driving emails.


Productivity: 5X Faster

BEE Pro has significantly improved the productivity and efficiency of SaaStr's marketing team in managing their email marketing efforts. Previously, they spent hours crafting emails, but BEE Pro has made them five times faster at completing email tasks. This time-saving tool allows the team to concentrate on other aspects of their marketing strategy.

Consistent Branding:

SaaStr's marketing team easily managed their brand styles using BEE Pro's Style settings feature. This made it simple to maintain consistency in fonts, sizing, assets, and colors, ensuring on-brand communication.

Quality Control: 

Leveraging the version history feature, Amelia and her team maintained high-quality work by reviewing previous email versions. This helped them avoid errors and enhance the quality of emails delivered to SaaStr's subscribers.

 “Many people think email is dead, but emails are still our number one driver. People just need a tool like BEE Pro that powers their emails.”
